In this chapter, Ferlie explores recent macro-level changes in the UK health policy process. At the macro policy level the alternative frames of analysis lie between narrowly couched processes (the Westminster and Whitehall model) or more network-based or pluralised policy processes. This tension is explored in relation to some vignettes of important recent examples of the UK health policy process. It is concluded that on balance there is evidence of pluralisation, but as yet in a highly bounded and provisional fashion.
